Inspired by the following passage from At the Back of the North Wind by George MacDonald:

For the baby was in the mother’s arms; and the drizzling rain, and the dreary mews, and even her father’s troubled face could not touch her.

What cared baby for the loss of a hundred situations? Yet neither father nor mother thought her hard-hearted because she crowed and laughed in the middle of their troubles.

On the contrary, her crowing and laughing were infectious. Her little heart was so full of merriment that it could not hold it all, and it ran over into theirs.
